    HVAC job opportunities overseas???

    I'm 24, single, no kids, no mortgage. My only responsibility is a car note and student loans. I have a 4 yr college degree, universal epa cert., and state of TX HVAC license. I've got 7-8 years of residential/light commercial experience and 6 mo. experience w/controls (and everything that comes along with controls... CHW systems, VAV's, VFD's, etc)

    Besides Iraq, anyone know of any potential jobs overseas? I've seen alot of job postings in Australia (awesome pay) but apparently the visa process takes a while to complete. Personally, I'd like to find something in the caribbean or southeast asia.

    They use A/c in pretty much every civilized country in the world... and if they're there, they're breaking! Just be prepared to learn the metric system, which will probably be the biggest PITA, since all the numbers you know now mean NOTHING.

    You don't need to learn metric just drop a couple of hundred on a good calculator that converts all that jazz for you.

    Refcon,

    I just sent you an email with my phone number and resume. I'm working nights this week so my hours are a little out of sorts. Thanks
